A GIFT FROM ABOVE
In this unique blend of memoir and journey, a Hong Kong-based couple, Harini and Haresh, share their struggle during the pre-adoption fostering phase in a small town in India. The prospective parents applied first to the Hong Kong branch of the International Social Service. Their application was then sent to CARA, a centralised Indian adoption authority. The adoptive parents were allocated a child from an orphanage in Bihar. But delays in the legal process resulted in the parents travelling all the way to Bhagalpur, Bihar, to face the local courts. This book tells the emotional experiences from both parents’ perspective, and the challenges they faced to adopt a baby from India. Delays and unnecessary discrimination led Harini to write a heart-felt letter to Mrs. Menaka Gandhi, who was the Minister of the Ministry of Women and Child Development. She was proactive in expediting the adoption process. Still, it took them two years (2015 – 2017) of labour pains to finally become parents, and to bring their child to Hong Kong. “A most touching story of determination and perseverance against all odds to complete one’s family. Unconditional love across borders.” – Iris Liu, Director of Programme, International Social Service Hong Kong Branch.
